Trump’s circle of sinners includes many disreputable individuals. He has surrounded himself with unscrupulous millionaires and billionaires, as well as failed politicians who embarrassed themselves and the American people while in office.
Possibly the worst of this group is another old, white man, who has consistently shown signs of senility and even madness; Rudy Giuliani. His rants at Trump’s convention and later on “news” shows were emblematic of a man who is losing his mind. Regardless, Trump has nominated him as his head of cybersecurity.
This creates another problem for your president-elect; Giuliani has been under investigation for his association with terrorists who seek to destroy the United States.
The Mujahidin e-Khalq, (MeK), is a brutal organization which arose during Iran’s Islamic revolution, but later lost favor with the nation’s leaders in Tehran. MeK has paid Giuliani $20,000 a year, and possibly much more, since 2012 in return for his appearance before the State Department to have the organization removed from its Foreign Terrorist Organization list.
The list of other failed Republicans on the payroll of MeK are just as despicable; they include Newt Gingrich, John Bolton, Elaine Chow, (wife of Mitch McConnell), and Fran Townsend who was a security aide to George W. Bush.
Writing for Politico, Daniel Benjamin I wrote:
In Giuliani’s case in particular, the hypocrisy is rather stunning. “America’s mayor” has presented himself as a centurion in the fight against “radical Islamic terrorism” and famously doubted Barack Obama’s patriotism, saying, “I do not believe that the president loves America.” Yet he appears to feel that gorging at the table of Islamo-Marxist terrorists who have murdered Americans is in no way unseemly.
MeK was organized in 1960, and carried our operations in Iran and other Middle-East nations beginning in the 1970’s, targeting American military and American business interests. It is responsible for dozens of deaths, as well as kidnapping and property damage.
With every passing day Trump offers additional proof that everything he told his supporters at his angry rallies was a lie. He cannot find the truth about anything with both hands.
It is fitting that Trump, Gingrich, and Giuliani have a close relationship; all three are philanderers, and have lied and cheated the American people for personal gain.
The President of the United States is the most scrutinized man in the world. All of Trump’s sordid and criminal past will soon be revealed to the American people by news agencies who have become Trump’s greatest adversaries.
Trump will give me and other writers more information about which to write damning articles than we have time for.
